I just bought this jacket and I'm so far very impressed. I'm 6'4" / 205 with ape-like arms (36-37") and found this to be one of the few jackets that feels like it has long enough arms and body length. I got the XL and there is plenty of room still for layers. If you are a little more svelt, have shorter arms, and/or not needing much underneath the L would probably be a good fit.
The styling is very nice on the jacket. The seems have red topstiching over the black which looks sharp. Hood is nice and roomy, but synches down well without a helmet. First time with this pocket style--would probably find it under-pocketed for primarily a ski shell (but that's not what i'm using it for).
